This is the new issue of the journal "MANAGEMENT". Its primary goal is to present current research in the field of management both to domestic and foreign public. The Journal deals with pressing problems, not only of general nature, but especially with those occurring in the countries in transition. In fact, it aims to cover functional issues, specific topics and general aspects of management related to all kinds of organizations – manufacturing and service companies, profit-making firms and non-profit organizations, private and public, as well as large and small enterprises.


Functional issues refer to the pressing problems of the four fundamental management functions:

Specific topics will be related to the current problems in specific management areas and the production activities, such as:

Some general management problems will be also included in the Journal. These problems deal with the subject, goals and methods of the management science, theory of management, as well as with the ethics and social responsibility of management as a profession, etc. Special attention will be paid to the problems of strategic management which represents a synthesis of functional and other specific management fields.

The listed topics define a wide range of research in the field of management, involving a large number of scientists and experts, not only from faculties of economics, but also from many other institutions (which deal with technology, philosophy, political science, law, etc.).

We would hereby invite all the colleagues interested in these topics to submit a paper and hence contribute to the improvement and development of the Journal.
